The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department combines all aspects of electricity, electronics, hardware, and software into one multi-disciplinary unit, offering degree programs in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science with minors in Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, and Software Engineering. This collection is composed of various materials pertaining to the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department. Included are brochures, programs, and newsletters.
Course work in electrical engineering was first taught at South Dakota State College in 1899. Physics and mechanical engineering, both of which served as foundation for the work in electrical engineering, were well established. An organization to provide for the instructional work in electrical engineering was arranged by enlarging the Department of Physics. This general arrangement continued without much change until 1909. In 1909, the Department of Electrical Engineering was organized as a separate department, and continues still.
The mission of the Department of Electrical Engineering is to provide a highly respected, rigorous and practical education in electrical engineering so that graduates may assume engineering position of responsibility and leadership. Another goal is to conduct meaningful research and scholarly activities with regional emphasis and to provide technical assistance in the field of electrical engineering to existing and emerging industries and businesses in South Dakota and to regional and global communities.
This collection is composed of various materials pertaining to the Electrical Engineering Department. Included are brochures, programs, and newsletters.
The 100th Anniversary of Electrical Engineering at South Dakota State University consists of a CD of digital photographs and other data related to the event's reception and banquet.
The Christmas newsletters appear to be directed at graduates of the department and include information on happenings in the department.
